Due to the nature of the work we do and the communities we serve, our volunteers will be experiencing situations that might           be new for them or living conditions that they are not accustomed to.  Before making the decision, we recommend assess your own physical and emotional ability to handle these situations. 


If you are interested in any particular area, please let us know.  We will be happy to develop a work plan that fits your skill-set and interests. If you would like to receive a complete Volunteer Package, please contact us at info@positivelifekenya.org.

As a volunteer, you will have the chance to experience Kenya first hand. Interns are immersed in Kenyan culture, have the chance to see the beautiful landscapes and the opportunity to partake in all that Kenya has to offer. Weekends and holidays are considered free time and interns are encouraged to go on safari, explore our capital city Nairobi, visit our beautiful coastal city of Mombasa, and any other excursions an individual might enjoy.


We are always looking for talent that can help us move our organization forward in areas such as healthcare, social business, economic development, capacity building, fundraising and strategic planning.  If you are interested in embarking in a long term relationship to provide support in these areas, please do not hesitate to contact our Executive Director at mwabwire@positivelifekenya.org.
